Spring and Summer Offerings

A Spring Offering

Collect offerings

of seventeen Dandelion

for young and lovely


When viewing the moon

everyone is beautiful

fireflies in the dark


To write of small frogs

who also miss Springtime rain

to curl in soaked balls


Call Warblers forward

“Come here, come here I have bread”

point their beaks away


These empty shadows

deep ash pits will hold hot ash

truth in everything


Do not write a poem

about a lonely white bloom

take a nap instead.


Before the Summer

Silent mountain stream

even the stones will not sing

stoic Lemon Tree


Lone farmer planting

holds his muddy gloves steady

sings a spiritual


The summer labor

will move in waves all day long

constant up and down


Eight views of a lake

temple of valley water

a prayer upon stone


gathering a crop

to throw cabbage in buckets

greenery of Spring


Unknown man through door

season is given away

a bright glare behind


Summer is Here

Two eyes and one nose

one to blink in the daylight

other spring flowers


Through the shutters come

the warped shape of summer heat

hotter than a flame


With painterly words

pictures highly developed

these charming details


Dawn light opening

Sparrow bathing in the sand

sky filled with void


Derangement of flame

clutches after wild goose flight

creates melted tar


From point of distance

river winds sharp rising hills

brings life to valley


Summer Offerings

A void sky cool breeze

life used water fill pine trees

flowing Willow strings


Mayflies hang on stem

above the vail of summer

shrill cry of insect


Unknown man stands still

breeze carries blossom to robe

beautiful brocade


Ten flowers blooming

to fix what one man can break

under red petal


No more cool spring rain

no raincoats of umbrellas

or springtime whispers


Only arriving

Geese rustle still morning pond

near where Egret stood
